StoreHippo launches e-commerce logistics aggregation platform ShipKaro

Hippo Innovations Private Limited, which runs the DIY mobile e-commerce platform StoreHippo, has launched an e-commerce logistics solutions aggregation platform called ShipKaro. At present it lists Delhivery, Aramex, FedEx, Ecom Express, Holisol, Blue Dart, Bombino Express, DTDC, Book A Wheel, Gati, OnlineXpress, Vegostics, and Xpressbees as carrier partners. It claims to deliver to over 20,000 PIN codes across India.

ShipKaro provides logistics integration for orders processed via e-commerce platforms such as Magento, Woocommerce, Opencart, and Shopify (besides StoreHippo), and also for marketplaces like Amazon and Flipkart.

It offers three different pricing plans:

Individual: It doesn’t have any fixed monthly charges, and shipping rates start from Rs 30 per 500 grams. The logistics partners available for this are Fedex, EcomExpress, Delhivery, Aramex, and Holisol.

Business: There’s a Rs 1499 per month fixed charge, and shipping rates start from Rs 27 per 500 grams. The logistics partners supporting this are Fedex, EcomExpress, Delhivery, Aramex, Holisol, and Fedex Surface.

Enterprise: This costs Rs 2999 per month, and shipping rates start from Rs 26 per 500 grams. Logistics partners offering this are Fedex, EcomExpress, Delhivery, Aramex, Holisol, and Fedex Surface.

So, if one doesn’t opt for the Business or Enterprise plan, they will be paying per use. Plus, ShipKaro allows users to compare prices offered by different shipping partners, and in case of a multi-product order, they can split the order between multiple shipping partner. Other features include pickup scheduling, cash on delivery payment option, shipment tracking, and logistics management among others.
